Weather Overview for Playa blanca
Playa Blanca receives a mild but arid sub-tropical climate with high temperatures and very low rainfall year round. The year can be split into a hot, dry summer and a cooler, slightly wetter winter, but temperatures do not differ by much and true beach-lounging weather can be said to exist year round. This is typical of
Summer, from April till November, might see a few millimetres of rain at either end of the season but can expect to be completely dry from June till August. The average high temperature at the beginning and end of summer is in the low 20s and the peak average high in July is pretty much perfect at 28°C. It can often get into the low 30s but it rarely becomes uncomfortably hot in coastal areas due to low humidity and the reliable northeast trade winds. Dipping into the warm sea is also always an option. Night times can be a little too hot for comfortable sleeping conditions, staying up near 20°C from June till October, but it is unlikely that you’ll find yourself without a fan or air-conditioning. It can be overcast or hazy at times but the sun usually shines for most of the day; on average the period from May till August sees nine hours of sunshine per day. Due to its easternmost position in the Canaries, putting it closest to Africa, Lanzarote is the island most likely to be affected by the hot, dry and sometimes sand-bearing sirocco wind blowing over from the
Winter, from December till March, is still warm though nights are much cooler. The average high temperature is around 20°C, dipping to 19°C in January. Precipitation levels do increase but rainfall is usually concentrated in a few brief storms occurring on about five days in each winter month. December and January are Playa Blanca’s ‘worst’ months receiving about 25 mm of rain each, with temperatures slipping just below 20°C. It is more likely to be overcast in winter; average sunshine hours get down to six per day in December but consecutive days of blazing sunshine still occur. Playa Blanca has brilliant weather for a winter getaway; the increase in rain should not even be considered as a negative point as it really is minimal; it is usually warm and the sea is always swimable. However, it can get quite cool at night and January days can’t guarantee uninterrupted sunbathing conditions.

Lanzarote’s easterly location near Western Sahara and Morocco and its low-lying topography make it the hottest and driest of all the
